The army chief of staff, Lieutenant General Hussain Muhammad Ershad, seized control of government on March 24, 1982. He proclaimed Martal law in the country and made himself chief Martal law administrator. He dismantled the structure of democratic government. He suspended the constitution, disbanded parliament, prohibited all political activities and deprived the president, vice president and cabinet minister of their offices. After that he officially took over the presidency by December 1983. He declared to returning the democratic rule within two years but it continued till 1990.
Martal law was against the democracy and he acted like a dictator .But democracy is our basic need to live freely in the country. Though his regime was full of development but people wanted the corruption free democratic country. So, from there we can say that corruption is the main cause falling down any government and no government can exist without ensuring liberty. So, ensuring the good governance was the only solution on that period.
